Reply To: Please tell me your story…GBS vs. CIDP vs. other

Hello Heathermansfield,

At this time, it does not make too much difference if you have GBS or CIDP. If your neurologist diagnosed you with GBS, she presumably will not give you corticosteroids. In that case, the treatment is the same for the two syndromes, either IVIg or plasmapheresis. You are being treated, right?

Godspeed in a prompt recovery,
